Mango Lemonade



Hot summer days are here Mango Lemonade is a sweet and tangy drink recipe to cool you down and help getting hydrated. This is a perfect spring or summer refresher which can be prepared ahead and save in a bottle and whenever you need just mix water to taste and a few ice cubes and you have a nice cold tasty refreshing drink ready!
For this you need ripe and sweet mangoes and freshly squeezed lemon juice and all other things are available at every household. I would say just use the nicely ripen mangoes neither overly ripened nor raw. Lemons or lime can also be used just fresh ones. With the availability of mango and lemons these days, it’s easy to enjoy this beverage any time.

Note:

  • Taste and check if drink has balanced flavor or not, you don’t want any flavor to dominate, add more sugar if mangoes are not sweet enough.
